Intuitive Technologies

Business Associate

Worked on a mission that allows social media users to financially benefit from the content they share.

It failed to gain traction after the 2nd half of the year. Instead of narrowing down our focus to making a few features great, the e-commerce platform was plagued with technical challenges from features we did not validate and pivot in time. It was finally bought over by World Ventures in 2016.

Create an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) in 3 months.
Goal was to create an app in 12 weeks after having hypothesis validated.
Language learned: Ruby, Ruby on Rails, SQL, JS, HTML5, CSS3, Sinatra, Git, Github.

After the failure of iT (Intuitive Technologies), I needed to learn the process & pipeline of a mobile app development. A personal outcome that was important for me was empathy building towards the coders & programmers in the team & understanding their pain points.

Dropped out at week 8 to pursue Social Entrepreneurship.
